Reviews of Science Saturday

"The approach was science education at its best. Each interaction with a scientist was up-close, personal, and motivating."

"My son had more fun at this event than I think he has ever had. Science Saturday makes a huge difference in inspiring children to become interested in science."

"What your big team created was better than any science museum we have ever been to."

"What an incredible day. As we left the campus — we hadn't even crossed the gates — my daughter asked, 'Can we do this again next year?'"
